Fickman plans comedy film double-header

Andy Fickman must be seeing double. The helmer is set to direct two comedy features set up at two studios. Fickman will go behind the cameras for "Don't Send Help" at 20th Century Fox. Fickman also has signed on to develop and direct "Daddy's Little Girl" for Walt Disney Pictures. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is attached to star. The story, written by Nichole Millard and Kathryn Price, centers on an NFL quarterback living the bachelor lifestyle who discovers that he has a 7-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray will produce. Disney's Brigham Taylor and Nina Jacobson are shepherding for the studio. (Tatiana Siegel and Borys Kit)
